Now that fall is upon us, keeping our hair as we want it can be something of a challenge, especially when it gets windy out, and even more so for people with long and/or curly hair. So, how can you tame your locks and maintain your chosen style, without the winds of seasonal change taking control?
Always be prepared
One key tactic when it comes to doing battle with the elements is preparation. You need to give your style the best possible start in order to avoid unwanted frizz and flyaways before they appear. One of the easiest ways to do this is with a simple blowout.
For straight hair
Apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to damp hair, then blow-dry using a paddle brush. The cream smooths the cuticle as it dries, giving you a sleek, frizz-free style right off the bat.
For wavy and curly hair
Apply Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Curl Taming Cream, then dry using the diffuser attachment. This will give you high-definition curls and help to keep frizz at bay from the get-go. You may also want to apply a serum or hair oil afterwards, too.
It can also be really useful to keep a quick-fix product in your bag for fast, on-the-go touch-ups when you're out and about. For this, we recommend Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray. It adds shine, eliminates frizz and smooths down flyaways instantly, leaving you with a polished style (read: more polished than when a gale-force gust turned your umbrella inside out as you tried to cross the street...) It's also a good idea to keep a small brush or wide-tooth comb on hand.
Keep your hair under wraps
If all else fails, keep your hair tucked under a hat, headscarf or headband to keep it out of the wind. For those of you who would prefer not to wear these things all day long, twist your mane back into a low chignon and pin it, put on your chosen protective accessory, then take off your hat/headscarf/headband when you arrive at your destination.
